Of course, the main focus of the newsletter will continue to be the categorized tools lists. But I like to strike a balance. As I've mentioned before, I want this to be more than just a dry roundup. I also want to ensure the quick tips are useful but not too lengthy.
- New stuff in the CSS specs
- Sass tips
- Popular libraries like React and AngularJS
If you have any ideas for quick tips you'd like to see more of, let me know by responding directly to this email. I'd love to get new ideas related to the types of technologies you're working with today.
